Pork Wraps

  • Brown ground pork

  • Serve in a wrap with lettuce & /or diced cucumber.

Chicken Quesadillas

  • Shred cooked chicken.

Burrito bowls

Trader Joe’s Pasta

Seriously, the easiest thing to do is just buy the frozen pasta meals from Trader Joe’s, maybe throw in some frozen meatballs, sauté, and you’ve got dinner for your teenager in 5-10 minutes. They can easily make it themselves, too. Win-win.
